When asked if he would ever work with Birdman again once money issues and business were worked out, Weezy answered “No, give me mine and I’ll walk off, free, smiling.” This Birdman and Lil Wayne break-up stems from a lawsuit in which Weezy is suing his former mentor for $51 million for advances owed, money owed for signing Tyga, Nicki Minaj, and Drake, and much more.
After meeting when Wayne was just 11, the ending of the Cash Money saga is actually quite sad. We’ll never get another “Stunting Like My Daddy,” or “Numba One Stunna.” To commemorate an end of and era — let’s be honest, Cash Money Records will never be the same again— here’s a walk down memory lane of Lil Wayne and Birdman’s collabs.
In 1999, Big Tymers and Hot Boyz teamed up for the now southern classic, “Bling Bling.” Birdman opened the track with his classic shit talking while a young Wayne handled the chorus.
On the Big Tymers third single “Number One Stunna,” Weezy laced the track with his vocals on the hook and a couple of verses.
Because the majority of the Hot Boyz had left Cash Money, Mack 10 and Birdman joined Lil Wayne’s Light’s Out single, “Shine.”
Frequent collaborators Big Tymers jumped on Weezy’s first single from 500 Degreez,”Way of Life.”
